OK, here's some ideas from my man:

Quote
As to the Combro, three  thoughts.  Before doing anything else, change the batteries.  The Combro absolutely eats them and when they start to run low it goes haywire in all sorts of unpredictable ways.  I now take the batteries out if I’m not going to be using them for more than a few day.  Second, use the proper alignment tool – don’t try to line it up by eye, or with any makeshifts.  Finally, make sure there are no artificial light sources whatever anywhere near the thing, neither fluorescent, nor ordinary incandescent.  I can’t stress this too much, whatever the instructions may say.

My thanks to you and your man...I think there's a winner in there...artificial light :facepalm:

Lets hope it's as simple as that then.  Let us know how you get along. :tu:

I'd forgotten about the Superstar.  That's the one with the rotary breach, right?

Yeah. Because she's a 22,I can still use her despite her being a springer. Besides,I love shooting her :D

So you'll still be shooting in the .22 class?  Interesting.  Here, I think, a spring gun would put you in the Recoiling class, no matter what the calibre.

Yeah...I've done this in the past when the Ultra was on the fritz. I think they just look at it and go,balls,recoiling,and 22 ballistics?  :rofl:

So you basically get written off as having no chance. ;)  I did try and do a comp with .177 Bisley Magnums which are pretty close to the average .22 in terms of weight.  The HW35 loves the things and shots them extremely well, but the loopy trajectory totally mucked me up.

Well,Sunday was fun :whistle:

I hadn't expected to be doing the Southern Hunters round at Mile Oak,but none the less,early Sunday there we were.

I took both the Ultra and the Superstar as a fall back.

Just as well,as we may have had to put the chrono on the Ultra,and may have had to do some very very quick adjustments to the power level...may have,you understand,it's not to say we did :angel:

For all that something wasn't right. When the comp started shots were dropping 6-8 inches low!

With a score of 2x6 after three targets,it just wasn't worth continuing...

Riiiight. ;)

Sorry to hear something's still not right though.  As you are very aware I've had more than enough rifle problems over the last 12 months and it actually feels weird not to be having to tinker with something all the time.

Well,ibe got two sessions at the club coming up on Sunday and Monday to get the adjustments done. I'm also thinking I'm going to put the Nikko Sterling half mildly scope on as well,get all the upgrades sorted in one fell swoop.

I ended up getting the Superstar out on Sunday,and completed the course with that,albeit not recording a score. Took six or so shots to get used to the recoil cycle again,but once I took a 25yrd,one inch kill,having to shoot through a pipe,things improved,and to be honest,I started to enjoy my morning again! Taking the free standers and kneelers really helped put a smile on my face >:D

As far as I'm concerned having fun is the main aim of the sport.  Mind you, winning is nice too.....so I'm told anyway.

Of course I've now got the urge to go and tinker with the HW57 again, just to see if I can get it grouping like I think it should. :facepalm:

Yeah me too! I checked my aim points,and they're pretty much still on. But next Sunday is Southern Hunters at Malden And District(aka MAD) one of the two most difficult courses in the Southerns :ahhh

Nothing logical :D

It was a two horse race between the HW99 and the Century. Logic was dictating the 99,as was price,but,I liked the stubby nature of the Century,and I spoke to a guy who has a Terius,and he couldn't praise it highly enough. Oh,and the Century has a positive lock on the breech

Still seems like a good choice to me John.  My mate's "go-to" competition gun is a Walther LGV and it's a cracker.  He's currently making a new stock for it hence the HW98 and HW77 getting brought out yesterday.
